NEW YORK, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Business Intelligence Associates, Inc. (BIA), an information management industry leader, and Catalyst Repository Systems, Inc. (CRS), a leading provider of scalable, multi-language document repositories for electronic discovery and regulatory compliance, jointly announced today a major and extremely affordable cost shift in the legal document review market by offering ISO 9001:2008-certified Legal Document Review plus feature-rich Online Document Hosting, for a cost of less than $1.00 per document.
"BIA's professional staff, our powerful technology and related efficient processes, and our close partnership with Catalyst allow us to create additional efficiencies not available elsewhere in the market," stated Brandon Mack, Director of BIA's Strategic Legal Solutions and Document Review. "Our ISO 9001:2008-certified process is built to take advantage of innovations provided by BIA's Data Management technology and the features in Catalyst to give us an advantage over other review operations. Because of this, we can offer our corporate and law firm clients the benefits of predictable, economical pricing and unparalleled quality across several critical parts of the EDRM."
For an unprecedented special flat-rate per-document cost, BIA's legal review is performed by highly skilled US-based attorneys located in BIA's domestic, state-of-the-art, secure facility. The per-document cost includes multiple issue tags, relevance tagging, QA, and full access to the CRS online repository for an additional 6 months past the initial review. BIA and CRS are in a unique position to offer this because of the efficient use of software and a highly tuned, ISO 9001:2008-certified review process ensuring efficiency, speed, quality, scalability, and integrity assurance of the documents throughout the process. The benefits of this evolution towards more predictability and cost controls follows BIA's Electronically Stored Information (ESI) model of per-document pricing. The offering includes:
- Predictable Pricing Model (per-document pricing, not per-page)
- Mature & Feature-Rich Online Review Platform
- Guaranteed Quality Control & Process Efficiency
- ISO 9001:2008-Certified Quality Management System for Document Review Services
- 6-Month Hosting Per Document Included
"Working closely with BIA, we have created a synergy – a seamless, defensible e-discovery & document review strategy for our clients that offers predictable pricing tailored to meet each budget," said Christopher Toomey, Director of Managed Review at Catalyst. "Our clients derive the benefit of BIA's process efficiencies and highly skilled, Catalyst-certified attorneys, along with our advanced analytics and review technology, all within a secure hosting environment."
The relationship that spans half a decade between these two companies is fiercely credentialed, both having long-established efficiencies in all of their processes through years of research and development. Mack echoes Toomey's comments.
"Our attorneys are trained, certified, and trainers themselves in the use and application of Catalyst's review tool. This knowledge greatly decreases any learning curves related to any projects and enhances our review effectiveness," concludes Mack.
The high-power blend of technical and human processes reaffirms BIA's ISO 9001:2008 certification for its Document Review Services' Quality Management System as proof of the excellence of BIA's Document Review Services and its document management process. Certified by NSF International Strategic Registrations, Ltd. of Ann Arbor, MI, over a year-long process using the ISO 9001:2008 standard from the International Standards Organization headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, the ISO 9001:2008 standards' certified process-based approach reduces overall review project time with error-checking methods – thereby controlling client costs. The documented, defensible, process-based approach to Document Review Services provides accurate results that identify patterns and errors while CRS' secure repository reflects ease of use to clients.
